Top Water Help...
Sep 21, 2017 - 10:31 AM - by BtheBlue
One of the higher lakes in the white mountains has always been pretty good to me and is my favorite place to camp and fish this time of year and into late October. Throughout the day on nymph or streamer rigs, stripping various speeds on sink tips or full sinking line or hanging under an indicator. Then early evening comes and fish are rising all over the place until dark. I change to my floating line and empty my top water fly boxes onto the water in search of a strike but nada! Should I...

Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco)
Sep 20, 2017 - 3:00 PM - by Bucksnort
If I go to Rocky Point with my pontoon boat carried in this manner, will I draw unwanted attention when returning the U.S.? No, I'm narcotics runner or dealer.

Lower Salt River
Sep 15, 2017 - 8:28 AM - by Bucksnort
I spoke to an angler who floats the Salt and fishes with spinning rods. He puts in at the parking area where the road to Saguaro Lake crosses over the Salt then goes downstream a couple of miles. I have forgotten the name of his take out point. He says he does it in inner tubes but I don't know just how these are arranged.

I have a pontoon boat which is powered either by oars or flippers or both. When the weather turns cooler, I may be interested in doing this.

Tube Flies
Sep 14, 2017 - 9:34 PM - by ejcrist
Anyone around here tie tube flies? I'm just starting to get into it and ordered an HMH Spinner vice for tying them. It seems to me tube flies would do very well for Pike up at Lake Mary and probably for Bass too down here in the valley lakes. I haven't ran into very many people in AZ tying on tubes but maybe that's because most fly fisherman here seem to go after trout exclusively, and tube flies wouldn't be very applicable in that area IMO.

Frye Creek/Gila Trout Update
Sep 14, 2017 - 10:54 AM - by Fish Manager
As most are probably aware we had a wildfire blow through the Gila Trout habitat in the Pinaleno Mountains in July. Surveys were completed earlier this week and the outcome for the fish and the habitat is devastating.

I'm sad to report that there were no fish sampled in either Ash Creek or Frye Creek. We were hopeful that fish had survived in these areas but the damage was much worse than we had expected. Going forward we will be assessing our options for getting fish back... [Read More]
